    Great to see Vialli on the line and looking fit last night at the Italy game after everything he’s been through.😊

    Stay strong Luca, keep fighting.

    Pagan, true enough mate but Sutton playing alongside the likes of Zola and Poyet etc should have done better than more than one goal.

    I was at the Bridge to see all of Sutton’s home games and the one I missed was when he scored v treble winning United because I was away on business in Japan at the time, thumping header in a 5 nil win I had the English Japan Times delivered to my room first thing every morning and I couldn’t believe the result both my boys were at the Bridge for the game though so I could eventually check out it’s authenticity with them.

    I almost forgave Sutton just for that goal.😊

    Foxy, we are way way off beam now mate and the waters have been significantly muddied.

    Let’s go back to the theme of your original two posts that started off this discussion.

    Watching You Tube highlights is not the way to judge any player imho they only show you the best bits.

    Assessing what a player has achieved in the SPL particularly a striker in the current SPL which is a poor poor League and hoping that,that will translate to the EPL is unlikely imho.

    But you never know and at £15m as I’ve said before he’s worth a punt by Leicester.

    Edouard will have a lot to prove if he does come to the PL I can only wish him the very best and hope it all goes well for him.

    Foxy, It wasn’t my judgement you put the players forward with “many good strikers have done their time in the SPL before coming here and doing well (Viduka, Larsen, Van Hoijdonk, Di Canio)” I merely pointed out their scoring records in the PL but some like Di Canio were far more than just strikers.

    Chris Sutton was one of the worst players I’ve ever seen in a Chelsea shirt. The fact that he became a regular goalscorer by going to Celtic kind of proves the point.

    As the Ed suggested the quality of the SPL has declined since the players you mentioned came to the PL and the step up from the SPL to the EPL is huge now.

    To be fair Nil they can only report what they see and in the first half without creating too many clear cut chances Italy were dominant.

    Both Shaw and Chilwell are very good players and there’s not a lot to choose between the two of them.

    Chilwell though has the impetus of winning the CL behind him and that’s the reason that if I was Southgate I would go with Chilwell but if Southgate selects Shaw I would still be just as happy with that.

    Chilwell over Shaw for me and like Lucky not just because I’m a Chelsea fan.

    Looking forward to the game tonight but does anyone know why we start with Italy v Turkey?

    Sean, Foxy’s claim was “many good strikers have done their time in the SPL before coming here and doing well (Viduka, Larsen, Van Hoijdonk, Di Canio)” I was merely factually responding to that claim. I acknowledged that Di Canio was more than just a striker by stating “as good a player as Di Canio was”.

    The key question in all this is , is it easier to score goals in the SPL than the PL and if we’re honest about it I think we all know the answer to that.

    53 goals in 87 games by Edouard looks impressive but you have to factor in it was in the SPL. However at a suggested fee of £15m he’s worth a punt by Leicester imo especially as Rodgers knows him so well.

    Foxy I’ll give you Van Hoijdonk although he only did it in one season at Forest but Do Canio as good a player as he was only scored over 10 goals twice in 7 seasons in the PL and he took penalties.😊 Larsson scored 175 goals for Celtic but only 13 La Liga goals across two seasons and Viduka 92 goals across 9 seasons in England.

    The SPL is a very poor League and strikers will always store more goals in the SPL than they will the PL. Worst think you can do is look at a highlights package even Michy Batshuayi would look good in one of those.😊

    “Arsenal have been looking at Edouard for a while indeed, while they admire his talents, there are said to be doubts over whether the Celtic striker works hard enough or has the physical capabilities to compete in the Premier League.Arsenal feel that Eduardo would need to make big improvements in both areas if he was to make a splash in England, although Leicester appear to have fewer concerns.”

    To be fair Rodgers knows him well and at circa £15m I think he’s worth a punt.

    I wasn’t suggesting Edouard would fail just that the SPL is a poor League in which to judge players especially strikers and highlight packages make everyone look good.

    I wish him all the best though at Leicester assuming he signs.

    Difficult to understand what happened with Wijnaldum but buying a replacement for him will take funds away from other areas of the team that might have needed strengthening.

    “Wijnaldum has promised to reveal all after Euro 2020 concludes. Additionally, he hinted that the decision over his exit was likely a business one made by the club’s hierarchy.”

    Wijnaldum a great free transfer signing by PSG. Be expensive to replace him at Liverpool.

    It was Tugay and they only lost one game to City away a penalty by Anelka.

    Yep Tugay spot on but only 4 teams in the history of the PL have bettered Conte’s points total one of which was Jose’s 2004/05 Chelsea team.
